The Trojan War

According to calculations by the Greek polymath, Eratosthenes today is the anniversary of the Trojan War's beginning. In Greek mythology, the Trojan War was waged between the city of Troy and the Achaeans (the Greeks) after Paris of Troy took Helen from her husband, Menelaus king of Sparta. The war is one of the most important events in Greek mythology and has been narrated through many works of Greek literature, most notably through Homer's Iliad and the Odyssey.
